I thought I’d create a Reed Buntings artwork as I love to see these little birds as I walk the dog in the fields near my home…

There is a pair who live along a ditch where I walk, and I see them bobbing from reed to reed, looking so much like the strings of bunting after which they’re named…

They’re very distinctive with the little black cap of the male - and I’ve grown quite fond of them, seeing them in the winter months when there’s not that much else to see when I’m out and about…

So I’ve very much enjoyed creating this artwork of my little pair of Reed Buntings.

I feel like the softened colour palette really suits the feel of the autumn and winter fields where I see the Reed Buntings, glimpsed amongst the tall reeds…
